The Imperial Calendar was implemented into the folk society after the joining with the dragons and the folk. It was one of the many changes made by Lady Kayl and Taiboor during their time of regime and a way of showing the might of the new empire.
Counting the daysEdit
Each year of the Imperial Calendar is a total of 365 days. These are spread equaly between the four seasons of Khairan, Spring, Summer, Augtoum and Winter.
This leads to 91,25 days per season. Due to the uneven number the corection lead to one day extra before spring. Outside the year that is the day of the new year, Star celebration as the holiday is called.
To make it easier to count and write the dates, each season has then been divided in seven parts called "Idun". Thees Idun are named in turn after the seven brighest stars in the sky:
Each of thees Idun is then 13 days long,. So when telling a date, the calendar is read: Tenth Roma of spring is somewhat early spring and Second Qursti of Winter Is rather late of the season.
Where there is a small extra houers each year more then the 365 days each year, this is corected trhough a sermony performed during the Star celebration whereas everyone stops the clock seven times, ones for each of the stars for an houer.
Years and agesEdit
The imperial calendar then turn every for season into one year. Thees years are then grouped together to an age.
Each age is based on the decree of the Ruling force based on large worldchanging events. each time a new age is declared, the year is counted to as the first year of the age, writen as such for example:
Second year of the Golden Age, telling it is right after the golden age has been declared. While the Threehundread of the Steam age is rather long time forward.
Some people and folk count thees ages diferently and can be somewhat regional, but even if a new age is made and another still use the old, most folk have an easy time following what year is ment as long as there is context on their counting.
